I'd like to understand/read a bit more about tilt-shift photography, how it's done, the basics etc. Does anyone have any guides?

I'm thinking about buying a TS-E lens of sorts to play with, to see if it's something I'll use.

Oddly enough, my most popular photos are all of watches. What I find weird about flickr is that some people seem to be 'favourites' and get loads of comments even on photos that are very average. One guy in particular I know of that does some great work, but even his rubbish will get 10 or 20 or 30 comments saying how wonderful it is.

You sure ? I always thought they were unique views. I know they don't could views by yourself in that total.

I think i based that on the view of when i would have conversations with people on one of their shots. I thought i would see the view count increase everytime i posted something. Doesn't seem to be the case when i try it now.
Maybe it is unique after all.

Clarence, i think Dan would be the person to point you in the right direction.
He was using one on our midnight shoot.

Yeh, that's always a problem with sites like Flickr. I don't think there's much you can do about it. Unless boycott!

David - <sigh> again makes me want to visit Italy a lot!

I love the view from the villa...how could you leave?

It was tough to leave - we had a ball. But it was just long enough away to be happy - didn't get to that "just wanna get home now" feeling.

You seen his view from home? ;)

Great shots David, will look at the rest when my internet is running a bit quicker.

Okies. The view from home is a little browner now, since the river's so full of carp ATM

Nice, makes me want to travel again..............

Yeah, me too!

Hey David, great shots. Reminds me I should post something. The challenge for everyone is - how did I take this when I've never been to Italy? ;)

Before the correct answer I figured your camera was stolen, taken overseas, used, but (by a stroke of good luck) returned to its' rightful owner.

But I was wrong!

i presume it's a miniature replica!

Good call

Alas, my most popular two photos are of puppies.

Any picture titled "pair of puppies" is bound to be on the top of any stats list - pity there isn't a counter that shows how long that image is viewed for - when they realised that the pair of puppies really was a pair of puppies, they would have moved on in a second or two :p

Honestly have no idea how it works, I just accept that it does and it is cool.

Im sure you would be able to hire one out and run around melbourne with it for a weekend?

Not sure where. Might see how I go though.

I'm guessing those people would have included the word 'chest' somewhere in their search string in the near vicinity of the word 'puppy.' :)

I sometimes throw in some of the popular tags for kicks. Regardless of whether the photo actually has any of those things in it. The views usually rise somewhat substantially :lol:

Hell yeah. It's kinda funny - you can set your profile to 'protect' you from accidentally seeing explict stuff. If you stumble upon something, you get to pick 'yes I want to see it' or 'no! take me to the kittens!' which redirects you to a search for the keyword 'kittens.' Kinda funny I thought.

And Kittens could be a secret keyword for something else explicit too... :p
